I find this behaviour rather odd, as Windows 8 was installed essentially on a lone volume. From what I read after researching on Google, Windows 8 will present a choice of which Windows you would like to boot in. However, this only happens if at the time of installation the Windows 7 drive/partition was present. As well, I could care less if I am able to select the Windows 7/8 drive from the BIOS and boot with desired results; It defeats the purpose of using Chameleon...
Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Yep, that seems to be bug of chameleon
Awesome, that worked...kind of anyway. After selecting Windows 7 the system restarts again and then I can boot into Windows 7. Somewhat annoying but at least it works.

Did you try reinstalling Chameleon? Usually it looks for OS installations when you install it.
Yup, it was the first thing I did. At first I tried Chameleon Wizard, then installer.pkg, then manual.
However, I did fix Windows 8 booting by default in EasyBCD and having to restart after selecting Windows 7. I had a brainstorm and decided to make Windows 7 the default OS; I still have the Windows Bootloader screen (plain text VS the nice Windows 8 GUI...meh), regardless of which drive I select at the Chameleon OS select, however after selecting either W7 or W8, it jumps right into the startup without a restart. I just hide one of the Windows drives to make things easier.
I can live with having to hit Enter 1 more time.
